This morning, commenter SouthernYankeeBelle alerted us that she schlepped all the way over to Tenth Avenue and 36th Street for the Mike & Chris sale only to arrive and nothing, no one, nada was there. Bunk! You might be from Los Angeles, Mike & Chris, but that's not how we roll at sample sales in Nueva York. We called a representative for Mike & Chris, and she told us there was a "major shipping error" with the boxes of merchandise they planned to sell, and the company is "incredibly sorry for the major inconvenience to the people who went to the sale," which was supposed to feature tops, bottoms, fleeces, bags, and leather goods for up to 75 percent off from today until Saturday. However, it might not be a total lost cause for anxious shoppers — the rep said that they will reschedule the sale within the next four to six weeks.
Update: Regarding rumors that Mike & Chris is folding as a brand, the representative released this statement: "The future of the brand is very much intact, they have been moving offices this past week and unfortunately that has caused them to be out of communication. The cancellation of the sample sale was an regrettable incident based on a shipping mishap and they expect to reschedule the sale within the next four to six weeks. As you know, Mike & Chris has great success over the years and look forward to many more years in business. "
